I finished Memoirs of a Geisha and highly recommend it, great read! Now I've just started Breakfast on Pluto by Patrick McCabe. I like his writing. I read Call Me the Breeze last year and since have been looking for his other books, so I have now collected 6 of them which I plan to read in succession: The Dead School, Carn, Emerald Gems of Ireland, Mondo Desperado and The Butcher Boy.

......but I hope at least you're enjoying them beau2ifulday!

I'm currently reading Angels and Demons by Dan Brown.

Not a clue what I will read next, I'm quite fussy when it comes to choosing a book to read

yes, it's a really fun book! the whole thing takes place within the course of a few hours, and that's about how long it takes to read the book...very hard to put down

will, i don't really think you're insufferable

Thanks for the tip VertigoGal my friend has been reading it recently and he's been raving about it too so i've been thinking along the lines of reading it and then i can go&see the film, knowing the plot! However, i'm quite a slow reader&wouldn't be good enough to read it in a few hours, never mind a few days! I'd love to be better at stuff like that!

Btw, i read some of your journal&i do actually think about things like the plane thing, you know wondering who's on it and stuff!

Tolkein

Right now I'm reading the #1 Ladie's Detective Agency series. It's terrific!

for school I'm reading 'The Color Purple'.

but right now I'm reading 'A Clockwork Orange' for myself and afterwards, I'm planning on reading 'Animal Farm'. Then after that I'm planning on reading 'Pride and Prejudice'. Then after that I'm planning on reading 'The Satanic Verses'. Then some other books..

I love books and enjoy reading on my spare time. Is it that obvious?

I had to read 'The Color Purple' for school last year. I didn't really enjoy it

I also had to study 'Animal Farm' for my GCSEs. I that book. I much prefer it to 1984.

I'm exactly the opposite...I read 1984 on my own, then thought that I'd read Animal Farm and didn't like it at all. I George Orwell though.
